I was seven. I had no idea about clothes, except knowing that we wear a uniform to school.
“Why didn’t you report it immediately? Why did you report it all of a sudden now, after years? You sure want attention?”
I was seven. I didn’t know that what happened to me was wrong. I didn’t know what they call it so I didn’t report.
“What evidence do you have that he did it?”
I was seven. I was only trying to get away from his clutches. I didn’t get the idea of going back to collect evidence.
“Was there any witness?”
I was seven. He could easily pull me to a place where we’d be alone.
“But his future will be ruined if this comes out now.”
I was seven and had a future too. He never thought of it.
“What were you wearing then?”
I was seven. I had no idea about clothes, except knowing that we wear uniform to school.
“Did you provoke him?”
I was seven. I didn’t know what provokes whom and towards what.

Neena Gupta’s take on love between a man and woman opens a can of worms. She’s speaking her truth, which is a reality for so many people, but is it universal?
Neena Gupta made a statement in her interview with Humans of Bombay that she doesn’t believe love exists between a man and a woman. She said it starts off with lust, which then changes into affection, and becomes a habit. The only love she’s ever known and felt is for her daughter, Masaba.
Neena is married to Vivek Mehra, a chartered accountant who she first met on a flight. Vivek Mehra has two children, and it’s his second marriage. It’s Neena’s second marriage too. She was earlier married at an early age of 20. She has one child, Masaba, from her previous relationship with the now retired West Indian cricketer, Vivian Richards.
Her statement about love evoked some vehement reactions ranging from she’s not met the right man to “blood runs thicker than water”.
A man doing a PhD is rebuked for not earning well. A woman on other hand is constantly questioned why she's doing a PhD when she should have been married and raising kids.
Indians have an almost fanatic obsession with the salutation Dr. Even a child who barely understands the world around, when asked “what you want to become later in life?” usually blurts out a teacher or a doctor, as these are the professionals we first encounter early on in our lives.
I too, was fascinated with the white coat fascination alongside with the Dr tag, right from childhood. However, I did not score the marks required for getting into medical college, and my dream landed on the ground with a thud, and I went in for a graduation in sciences.
My graduation and post-graduation were a roller coaster ride and a second post-graduation which I pursued since I wanted to get into the academic career brought with itself a new perspective towards life. That year I shone like the brightest star and became the most meritorious student of the campus. I cleared my Net exam much before the post-graduation results were declared, and became a sort of sensation in the university. One of my professors remarked, “So we see the next doctor in making now” when he congratulated me.
